should I go to Rome?

Jump to last reply

Who would say no? My 24 y/o son and I are going to Italy for 13 days in January, flying in and out of Bologna. My current plan is for us to spend 3 nights in Bologna, 4 in Venice. Then we return to Bologna, where he will take a 5 day course and I can do what I want. I planned to stay based in Bologna, with day trips to Florence (where I have been and love) , Ravenna, and maybe Faenza and/or Ferrara.

I have seen much of northern Italy, but never been to Rome. Now I am thinking about going there for three nights. In cities my favorite thing is to walk through interesting neighborhoods, visit markets, people watch, be outside a lot. Also art museums. Not shopping. in January Rome will be a bit more moderate temperature-wise than the other places (though I live in New England and am not worried about the cold). I'm definitely a slow traveller and know I'd be happy with Bologna and a couple of day trips, but Rome tempts. Thoughts?
